It all began on the night of Saturday September the 30th 1944...

Seventy-three years ago tonight my late father, George Cross, then a Flight Sergeant in the Royal Air Force, was a navigator with his pilot Jock in a de Havilland Mosquito on a night intruder mission over northern Germany.

I would like to invite you to discover what happened to the then 21 year-old airman and his friend Jock on that cold dark night over enemy territory.

If you prefer simply to listen then here is audio version (lovely Lancashire accent plus the occasional budgie in the background)

Feel free to share any of these files.
